The Asian ratsnakes are among the most beautiful of the Asian colubrids, comprising a fascinating group of animals that people the world over have admired for decades. This volume provides a comprehensive review of the Asian ratsnakes both presently and formerly aligned with Elaphe that occur within Greater China (mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau). This book serves not only as a field guide but also as reference material for this taxonomic group, abundantly illustrated with brilliant photographs from a number of very talented photographers, and includes details on the natural history and captive care of this group of snakes. It is written in English and Chinese, with the goal of bridging language barriers for non-Chinese speakers visiting or working in China.
